Everybody Loves a Holy War

Album: Victims of the Age
Victims of the Age
Some say that God has approved of their mob
Esteeming their purposes alone..
Choosing sides with a definite pride
And taking their cause for His own.

Everybody loves a Holy War
Draw the line and claim divine assistance..
Slay the ones who show the most resistance,
Everybody loves a holy war. –Oh, yeah

Many's the man with the iron hand
Supposing his own thoughts to be Divine
He will break any bond
'cause the other man's always wrong
It's a handy excuse for his crimes..

Everybody loves a holy war
Draw the line and claim divine protection,
Kill the ones who show the most objection,
Everybody loves a holy war..

Dissident cries are met with cold eyes
And treatment the devil would get
Righteousness and truth
can be weapons in the hands of fools
While innocents go to their deaths..

Everybody loves a holy war
Draw the line and claim divine assistance,
Slay the ones who show the most resistance,
Everybody loves a holy war,
Everybody loves a Holy War..
